Fort Peck Interpretive Center

Updated 12/31/1969

Fodor's Review

The 18,000-square-foot Fort Peck Interpretive Center features interpretive displays recounting the history and significance of the dam's construction, wildlife of the lower river and Missouri River Breaks, and one of the most striking life-size dinosaur displays in the West. It's a reproduction of Peck's Rex, a tyrannosaurus rex unearthed near Fort Peck, and other local dinosaur discoveries are also detailed here. The center also features the largest aquariums in Montana,

filled with the native and introduced fish species of Fort Peck Reservoir and the Missouri River. Guided tours of the dam and its power plants are available April through October.
